The Saudi Arabia Platform as a Service Market is anticipated to register a high CAGR during the forecast period of 2024-2028. The government is the main force behind digital efforts and Platform-as-Service is a foundational component of many of their modernization programs.

The expansion of cloud data centres is also likely increase investment over the course of the projection period, which will likely benefit the Saudi Arabia Platform as a Service market.

Saudi Arabia Platform as a Service Market Challenges

The issue with pricing is that the companies are accustomed to purchasing large quantities of countable items such as licenses or hardware. We then add a slew of services, such as per-server administration fees, per-CPU performance boosts, and per-hour technical labour. The wonderful thing about it (apart from the fact that it must be paid) is that it is simple to compute the cost. Cloud malware injection, meltdowns, account or service hijacking, and man-in-the-cloud attacks disclose enterprise data vulnerabilities, which can lead to business shutdown and losses. Cyber-attacks, on the other hand, impair business operations, restricting the expansion of the Platform-as-Service market.
